A local court today extended police remand of Shivraj Puri, the main accused in the alleged Rs 400 crore Citibank fraud, by 2 more days till January 14 as police is yet to recover iPad considered to be vital evidence. The Chief Judicial Magistrate D N Bhardwaj remanded Puri in police custody for two more days after public prosecutor said that police needed more time to gather evidence and verification of data gathered by chartered accountants.
Puri, who was a Relationship Manager at Citibank’s Gurgaon branch, was arrested by the police last month after the Rs 400-crore scam was detected. He was remanded in police custody for seven days, which was extended by 6 days on January 6.
Police, sources said, are keen to get hold of Puri’s iPad which could provide vital clues about the details of money transactions and contacts of Puri.
